Election Day is less than two weeks away. If you still don’t know who you’re voting for, a newspaper, some PACs, and a group of ministers would like to makes some suggestions.

Northwest Current

Current newspapers publisher Davis Kennedy has judged the attorney general candidates and found them wanting—-all except for Karl Racine, who can put the paper’s endorsement right next to the Post endorsement on his campaign lit.

In an email blast, the paper touts Racine’s experience as the reason they picked him over his four rivals. Alas, thanks to the Current‘s relaxed attitude to posting its issue online, LL can’t point you to the endorsement itself.

The LiUNA! laborers’ union council also backed Racine recently.

Business PAC’s

At-large hopeful Robert White has won the affection of two PACs representing big business in the District, with both the Hotel Association and the Realtors’ PACs endorsing him.


The ministers of the Wednesday Clergy Fellowship are picking one of their own in the at-large race, backing Rev. Graylan Hagler. The fellowship claims to have some 10,000 people in its represented congregations.

Go-Go Frontman

Go-go loved Adrian Fenty in 2010. If go-go singer Sugar Bear has his way, it’ll do the same for Fenty protege Muriel Bowser in 2014. Sugar Bear, a member of go-go band E.U., has endorsed Bowser for mayor.

“Don’t play with her, don’t play with me,” Sugar Bear advises in this video.
